– a VALVE PACKAGE supplier


Valve packages are typically offered by valve distributors.  BFE is a valid alternative.  BFE manufacture the majority of valves typically required for a Mechanical / Equipment package (Ball, Gate-, Globe- & Check valves forged/cast, Double Block & Bleed, TC Gate (Slab/Expanding) – manual and actuated – typically 70-85% of package value).  Consequently there is no extra markup on the majority of the valve scope.  The balance covering B’fly, Wafer- & Axial Flow Check, and Special Items, will be offered from manufacturers nominated to the Project, manufacturers with a proven track-record in the North Sea.  Typical Instrument valves may also be sourced (PSV/Control valves, Special Items)

Send the inquiry to Mr. Simone Magni in BFE to find out if this alternative is worthwhile.

This should be an interesting alternative for Mechanical Package / Equipment package vendors.  These vendors are not buying large quantities of «bulk» items like the EP-contracts procuring valves for New Project Developments using Frame Agremeements / Project Frame Agreements where the total valve scope is split into the typical valve packages as shown – due to the resources and hours required for selection / approval processes valid for the total Project.
